Hello! Thank you for joining us for the final Paper Adventures Hop for 2020. We are absolutely delighted to be joined by Jo Blackman as a our guest designer. We I reflect on the amazing names that have agreed to hop with us across 2020, I feel so grateful to have shared their talents with our team.
A big thank you also to the team for joining in each month and sharing their talents too! And finally, a thank you to Narelle and Robyn who took over the organisational role for the blog hops for part of this year, allowing me to jump in and just enjoy the creative side.
Today’s theme is ‘invitations’. It’s such a festive time of the year with parties and events throughout the month, so it seemed like the perfect match for our blog hop. I have gone a little rogue with my interpretation of the them and rather than making an invitation, I have made wedding card that was inspired by the invitation. I do this often as I really enjoy being able to personalise cards.
The wedding invite was an elegant black and white design with script writing for the couple’s names. This is the design I created to compliment the styling of the invite…
I’ve used some retired favourites for this card. Although I rehome lots of my Stampin’ Up! once it leaves the catalogue, I have a moderate stash of occasion specific products including these items for wedding cards.
The die in the corner – to add a touch of fancy to the elegance theme, is from the So Detailed Thinlits. The Mr & Mrs sentiment – perfectly classic – is from the To Have & To Hold stamp set.
The other items you see are from the current Annual Catalogue including Sutble Embossing folder, Basic Pearl Jewels, Basic Black Cardstock and Whisper White cardstock.
We had an update today that Stampin’ Up! have needed to change suppliers for their white cardstock. They have developed a new white cardstock with a new supplier, but no specific timelines are known. You are currently able to order two of each item on the discontinuing list of Whisper White products. If I can help you to order some for your stash, please let me know. This includes:
- Whisper White 12″ x 12″ (30.5 x 30.5 cm) Cardstock (124302)
- Assorted Memories & More Cards & Envelopes (149710)
- Whisper White Note Cards & Envelopes (131527)
- Whisper White 3″ x 3″ (7.6 x 7.6 cm) Envelopes (145829)
- Whisper White A4 Cardstock (106549)

I now ‘invite’ you to keep hopping and visit our amazing guest designer – Jo Blackman. I love Jo’s style and I know you’re going to love the project she’s sharing with us today.
Thanks for hopping with us for this hop and the others throughout 2020. We look forward to more fabulous themes and great hops in 2021!
